IMS Version 3 1971-72 Tryout: Initial Report on COMSYS 1 and 2 Computer Operations.
Instructional Management System (IMS) information cycles from participating schools to the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) for processing, returning again to the school in the form of summarized reports of pupil data. One segment of this cycle is managed by the IMS pupil data base processing program. The program generates reports from processed IMS pupil test scores and updates the Pupil Data Base Tape at a central computing facility. This paper describes the characteristics of IMS data processed during the first seven weeks of the IMS tryout as interpreted and logged by the managing program. Statistics on the various computer runs, forms submitted, and school response rates are provided. (Author/DGC)
